Not the largest gallery but a variety of interesting, well-designed spaces and brilliant work including from a number of local artists. There's a fair degree of with and charm in many of the exhibitions, and we were very impressed and would recommend it highly. The carpark here is a great place to drop of the car if you want to walk across La Petite France towards the middle of the old town.

I have family in France so generally I love visiting. However, this visit to the Museum in Modern Art was the worst experience of my life . The museum closed at 1pm and the staff was terribly rude and did not allow exiting visitors to go to the bathroom. They also pretended not to understand English when I asked to see the manager. The staff behavior was totally unacceptable in the context of an cultural institution . They should be fired !

It does have only a few of the great artists of our modern era, but does not suffer because of it. There is an intriguing display of Kandinsky’s work and relationship with music. Some of the minor artists and their attempts to create a new path, and of course the contemporary works of some that I’m still trying to absorb….

Meeting Elisabeth (Nana) by Niki de Saint Phalle in the foyer set the scene for a great tour of superb moderns.

Had never seen any by the Romanian born Victor Brauner so great to admire some of his oeuvre. Notably L’Endoréalité, L'Animal Moderne... and La Parole.

Cavaliere by Damien Deroubaix from 2018 is striking. Women's Team of Parachute Jumpers by Alexey Kallima is marvellous. As is Araignee by Alain Sechas.

All the greats are here. Monet, Sisley, Signac and Bonnard amongst many more.

An Untitled by Patrick Neu is worth perusing. A piece of a tree trunk is crowned with an slightly irregular circle of glass with lights. A worthwhile a crown as maybe some in other areas of life.

A great installation by the Welsh artist Richard Deacon is his Quick from 2009. Made of oak pieces that were steamed to bend them. These were then joined with metal fasteners and allowed to unfurl into serpentine shapes. A superb symbolising of agility and malleability of life.

I went on a walking tour earlier today and when I asked about this museum, the guide said it is not that worth seeing unless there is a really good temporary exhibit. I think it is about managing expectations. This museum is not very large. It has 2 floors and you can cover most of it in 1-2 hours (longer, I suppose, if you read every panel). For 7.50 euros I felt it was good value.
They are celebrating the museum's anniversary and had an exhibit highlighting the collection arranged by different themes. Some highlights for me were works by Kandinsky, Picasso, and Strasbourg artist Gustave Doré.
I also loved that the museum is not crowded and has such a peaceful, airy vibe. It is not a "must see" in Strasbourg, but it is precisely for this reason that it is so tranquil inside. I ate lunch in the Art Cafe which was great ( reviewed separately on TA). I would say this is a great activity if you are into art and/or a good option for escaping bad weather. (I went on a very hot day and their AC is strong and refreshing!).

Wow, honestly one of the best museums I've ever been in. Went early so it was quiet. Got to see Picasso, Kandinsky and other famous names. Excellent mix of artwork to see, nice size and space. 2 floors. Can easily do in 1-2 hours or spend longer at cafe.

Short pleasant walk from old town. Recommend a visit to get out of the hot midday sun or for a rainy day.

Arrived and a very friendly person behind the ticket office allowed me to go in for free a really nice act of kindness!
Some spectacular pieces and quite unique however the lack of English labels made the experience sometimes quite hard to engage fully without knowing the full picture.
Different rooms with different styles each made it constantly engaging to an extent.
Wouldn’t come again as seen everything but would recommend any one in Strasbourg for a couple days to visit!!

The “Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art” in the city of Strasbourg, is located on the Petite France side, when you are leaving the car into the underground car-park “Centre Historique – Petite France, you are coming out on the entrance of the Museum. The Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Strasbourg (MAMCS) was inaugurated by Catherine Trautmann, then Minister of Culture and former mayor of Strasbourg, this happened in December of the year 1998.

Impressive building with exceptionally nice light that is ideally suited for the display of a really well curated collection. The restaurant is good, too. I gave only 4 out of 5 because the labels of the newly acquired pieces were only printed in French and in a very small font size. Also the building has the most complicated entry and exit system I have ever experienced in a museum. The wardrobe is managed by the same person who controls the entry which created some chaos.
